Automation for ABAP Systems Monitoring

Hi Experts,

We have implemented one monitoring automation for 8 ABAP system monitoring and sending the consolidated report to the customer. Steps are mentioned below-

1) ABAP Team created a Function module(for different tcodes monitoring)

2) Using startrfc.exe the function module is called and all the 8 files for 8 systems are kept in different folder on the server.

3) Consolidating it via java code and sending email to the clients accordingly.

Now, the issue is we are upgrading to higher version and startrfc.exe is not working with the 7.2 kernal of SAP system(upgraded for one system and tested).

So, please suggest if this can be achieved via some other function or codes.

  • Yep, looks suspiciously like a ZSOLMAN. :) I'm rather curious though what exactly is "ABAP system" and why startrfc.exe got involved there.

  • Hi Kiran/Jelena,

    We dont have Solman currently in our scope, and the customer want the consolidated report for all the systems. We are monitoring smqq1,smq2,sxmb_moni,sm58,st22,bd87,sm37 in the function module.

    startrfc.exe is calling the function modules and adding monitoring report for all the systems in a folder.Then, these files are consolidated and sent to the customer using java coding.

    Hope I am able to explain.Please suggest.

  • I agree with Kiran and Jelena, this is just bizarre. It's like pulling a Mercedes with a horse.

    You should have SolMan running, because it's required for system operations and fixes. So it should take just as much effort to switch on the standard monitoring as to develop a custom solution. And even if you have some reason not to, why do this at OS level? Just do data collection centrally in one system using standard ABAP RFC connections.

    I also agree with everybody. Please google for Solution Manager demo videos and find out for yourself why this is the preferred way to go forward in your situation. Also go on the SAP Service Marketplace for KBA documents on this subject.

    Kind regards, Rob Dielemans
